The Imperial Dominion of Arithei is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Lord Lanair with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 36.077 billion Arithites hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alqualondë. The average income tax rate is 79.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aritheian economy, worth an astonishing 13,695 trillion Drachmas a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 379,626 Drachmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, sweet-toothed Arithites have been left penniless by the VAT on candy, space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across Arithei, and literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts. Crime is totally unknown. Arithei's national animal is the Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arithei is ranked 60th in the world and 2nd in NationStates for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 98.06 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
